|Dan River Autism Awareness 5K|
Averett is sponsoring and participating in the third annual Dan River Autism Awareness 5K. The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money to assist local families/individuals on the autism spectrum. All registration fees for the event go toward the fundraising goal for The Dan River Regional Autism Fund. We encourage you to take part, not only for the personal benefit, but for the overall value of supporting our local community's families!
You do not have to run. Heck, you don't even have to walk in the "timed" walk! It's truly about participation and engagement. Simply fill out the form online, pick AU 4 ASD as your team name and show your investment in our community and Averett University!
If you have any questions/comments contact Jill Hamlin at email@example.com or by calling 434-791-7240. Click here for the online registration form.
